    I have been working at Bloomberg L.P. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Bright, motivated & friendly colleagues (mostly young, you'll always find someone if you want to go for drinks)
    - Very diverse workforce
    - Generous benefits & well-stocked pantry
    - Lots of learning opportunities (internal trainings)
    - Many community engagement activities (volunteer projects, galas and etc)

    Cons

    - Limited upside means most people either stay in the job for years or move laterally or just quit and move on
    - Little transferable skills: Market players seldom consider a data analyst to be equipped with relevant skills/experience despite handling an asset class for several years.
    - Most skills you need can be picked up in 6-8 months
    - Work can be voluminous and tedious (lots of data clean ups, manual data entry, etc)

    Advice to Management

    - Hire better quality vendors with proficient language skills
